A group of men were sitting in the chapel. I went to count how many were there when one of them asked me to preach stating, ‘what’s the word for today?’ I told them I liked Isaiah 43: 1 where we are told God knows us by name. I started calling certain ones in the group by name. However I couldn’t name them all. There’s approximately 1285 men where I work on any given day.
Isn’t it wonderful to know God cares so much about each person that He can call them by name?! No matter who you are or what you do in your life, God knows your name.
1 But now, thus says the Lord, your Creator, O Jacob,
And He who formed you, O Israel,
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name; you are Mine!
What’s your name? God knows.
